Prevention Maintenance and Cleaning Tips for LED light products

Time:2016-05-10 Views:4355 Compile:SUNPER

Just like anything else needs care and maintenance, the same way LEDs need maintenance for effective working and long lifespan. LEDs require little effort in maintenance and this is best thing about the LEDs. However, there are a few steps that can be taken in order to help maintain the quality of your products. 

For prevention, the following is what should be done.

1. Clean the surface before installation

LED products are designed such that installation process is very easy. They are manufactured with an adhesive mounting option. In order to make sure that LEDs adhesive remain secure, surfaces should not have any dust or debris before installation process. If the surface is rough, it maybe sanded while polished surfaces may be cleaned using rubbing alcohol.


2. Avoid excessive contact

Definitely, occasional interaction is expected. However, it is worth noting that LED strips comprises of delicate components that can become loose or even break if not handled well. The LED systems should be installed far from high traffic areas to prevent unexpected damages.

3. Limit exposure of your LEDs to moisture

Low voltage LEDs may handle some moisture from the splatter or steam. If there is excessive or prolonged exposure to water, this may comprise the integrity of the system. Moisture reduces the effectiveness of adhesives and can also cause the LED components to break or rust. You should dry the area that comes into contact with moisture using a paper towel or a soft cloth. Weather resistant LEDs should not be submerged in water as well.

Maintenance tips include the following

1. Provide occasional dusting

The LED systems that are properly installed typically requires little maintenance from time to time. It is recommended to use a soft and dry microfiber cloth to avoid any material from snagging on the LED components.

2. Check the connection points

Over the lifetime of any LED system, the normal tear and wear may occasionally cause some connection points that may make it become loose. If the LEDs appear to be flickering or fail to turn on, make sure that all the connectors running to and fro the affected area are fastened securely.

Cleaning tips

1. Remove stains and splatters

It is a bit good to have a bit of sanitation from time to time even for the most well maintained LEDs. The ones that need thorough checking are those under kitchen cabinets. Any residue or liquid is supposed to get removed immediately by using a paper towel or cloth. You should avoid using materials that may snag on the LED components. 

2. Remove any residue and debris

If a stain or splatter has dried, use a warm and damp cloth to dab or gently blot the area affected. Avoid scrubbing or using materials that may snag on the components of the systems. If the residue is sticky, apply a small amount of rubbing alcohol to the LED strip or use a paper towel.

3. Avoid using corrosive cleaning agents

The harsh chemical cleaning agents that are commonly used in bathrooms and kitchens should not be applied to the LED products. This is because they contain adhesives and may cause corrosion and even fail with time.
